The Slatington Public Library is grateful to the Rotary Club of Slatington for their grant of $2500 in 2022. The grant money has been used to upgrade our security system, including the purchase of several additional cameras. We now have cameras posted at all entrances and at several locations within the library. We are also grateful to Mickley Fravel for their 2023 grant of $6470.50 which is being used to renew our SPARK (online catalog) subscription, purchase book shelves, and cover the additional cost of upgrading our security system.

Thanks to everyone who visited us at the Walnutport Canal Festival


Thanks again to all our friends, patrons, and volunteers for supporting our 26th Annual Basket Social.

We had over 290 baskets and the event was very successful! Many thanks to the Slatedale (Citizens) Fire Company. The food they served was delicious and they are wonderful partners to our event! You can check out the success of our event by reading the Treasurer's Report in October. The report will be posted for our October 11th Board meeting.

Slatington Public Library is looking for FRIENDS.

Please call the library if you are able to volunteer a few hours to help with shelving books, barcoding books, creating window displays, baking for special library events, or assisting us with specific tasks. You do only what you have time to do! Won't you share your time and talent with us?

Here's a treat shared by the Slatington History Preservation Society.

It's the Slatedale Cemetery Walk video: A WALK AMONG SLATEDALE NOTABLES.
